Full Description
Hi, My name is Chris, I am an international award-winning Norfolk Wedding Photographer based near Norwich with over 17 years experience. I’m lucky to have some beautiful Norfolk wedding venues right on my doorstep. You have found one of the UK’s finest and chilled professional wedding photographers. I specialise in a more natural and relaxed documentary style of photography. Mostly I offer wedding photography from my home location covering Norwich and East Anglia but I also am a destination wedding photographer covering the world from Corfu to Barbados. I photograph weddings in my own unique relaxed documentary style, to capture unscripted moments of your special day. I’m well known for my Strobist style of photography, a technique I have mastered to produce dramatic and dynamic photographs. You can see more details of my Strobist photography on my Strobist photography page. I offer a free engagement shoot to all my clients so we can get to know each other. It also gives me a chance to show you my skills and methods of working. To book your free Engagement shoot please contact me. If you would like to book me as your wedding photographer, please get in touch. Chris

His plethora of experience shows through his teach
I attended a photography creative lighting workshop with Chris. He is friendly and a true professional making everything so easy to understand. His plethora of experience shows through his teaching style. He explains everything clearly and shares his wealth of knowledge. He is very patient and I have learnt so much in just one session. Thank you Chris

Professional, reliable and such a great guy!
Professional, reliable and such a great guy! The whole service provided by Chris for our wedding was superb. Kept us informed the whole way through. We got our photos in various formats so quickly along with a few personal touches on the way. If you’re looking for a top photographer along with a top customer service look no further. Chris, thanks for everything. We will definitely be using you and your services again!

Chris was such an incredible photographer!
Chris was such an incredible photographer! From guiding us through a lovely relaxed engagement shoot, to helping us get used to having photos taken, to being super supportive and communicative in the lead up to the big day! When we learnt close to our day that our chapel would be covered in scaffolding Chris was right there with reassurance and ideas of other places for photos if needed. On the day itself Chris worked so hard, we had a very energetic wedding, dancing from one venue to the other and Chris kept up with our pace all day! The photos are just incredible, Chris captured all the little fantastic details, reactions, hugs and kisses. We love them all and are definitely going to run out of wall space to display our favourites as there are just so many! Thank you Chris

Chris is an amazing photographer with a friendly
Chris is an amazing photographer with a friendly, relaxed approach. Nothing is too much trouble for him and we were so happy with our wedding photographs. We love his documentary style of photography - it meant more time enjoying our day and less time posing and gathering people to have group photographs. Can't recommend him highly enough!

Booking Chris as our wedding photographer was one
Booking Chris as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions I made whilst planning our wedding. From the way he popped round for a cup of tea to chat through the shots we wanted beforehand, to how he fitted in perfectly on the day. Friends have often commented to me about how their wedding photos "took ages" or "were stressful". Chris's calm, relaxed professionalism meant that on the day we hardly even noticed we were being photographed, which also resulted in some of the most natural and beautiful moments captured in the pictures that i've ever seen. A brilliant experience and a photographer I would highly recommend.

We contacted Chris to cover our wedding in Norwich
We contacted Chris to cover our wedding in Norwich on 10th May. He was absolutely superb and we cannot be more delighted with the results of the day. His photographers were absolutely first class. What makes a huge difference is the service he provided after the wedding. They included all the photo's taken sent to us on disk, an amazing photo album and more high res pics after. There isn't a better wedding photographer out there!
